'Game of thrones' season 8 episode 3 trailer is out and it doesn't bode well for Winterfell's heroes
This article contains spoilers about Game of Thrones season 8 Episode 2 and the rest of the series
In case you didn't realize, the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones' was a little emotional - perhaps, more emotional than any other episode ever. Brienne got Knighthood, Missandei and Grey Worm decide to run away, Arya and the Hound have a moment, Arya and Gendry have an even bigger moment, Sansa and Theon reunite and of course, Jamie Lannister finds a reason to live again. You have had to be suspicious because of the many heartwarming moments in the episode and your suspicions are correct - the next episode is set to be terrifying, heartbreaking and probably one where half of the people we love will die.
Episode 3 promo kicks off right where episode 2 left us - with the Night King knocking on the wall. The promo starts with a Sansa voiceover, "The most heroic thing you could do now is the truth in the face," she says as Grey Worm, ready for battle puts on his helmet. It is unclear who she is talking to, but there's one thing that is definitely clear - Worm is probably the first one to go this season. He's had a full life, found love and honor so maybe it won't be such a bad thing.
The promo shows everyone in Winterfell looking terrified yet brave at the same time, all willing to give up their life for the living. Arrows are being shot, there are horses standing ready to charge as our heroes are gritting their teeth with the only thought being how to get those white walkers to die. The trailer does imply that this battle won't be another "Battle of the Bastards" and neither will it be something that they could possibly win. If you remember the Night King's army from last season, it will require much more than a handful of horses to fight them.
Our guys do have the dragons of course and they ride them in the episode - at least one for sure. The trailer as dark as the night that is full of terrors shows someone riding a non-icy-eyed dragon. This means that the rider isn't the Night King but one of the two - Dany or Jon. It also shows a moment between Beric and the Hound and they look cornered.
Finally, the trailer ends with a screaming Brienne the Knight of the Seven Kingdoms saying, "Stand your ground!". She looks like there's potential A level danger ahead and we know that she will go all in, but here's hoping we will see just a little more of Brie Brie.
